Our current school priorities include improving standards of performance and motivation for students, the development of languages skills, ICT, e-learning and provision for the more able and talented. The school sees the need to create a greater appreciation of the world in which we live in. Our goal is to help students come to appreciate and understand the science of ecology and subsequently gain the capability to apply it to their lives.

The project will benefit on strengthening students relationship with the environment. Students should develop an understanding of basic environmental processes. Cooperation with other European schools shows that it’s the same world we’re living in and inspires students to be part of the European family.
Students take a variety of measures for their development and school development, propose and implement initiatives, school and non-school through well-working student council. Youth organizes charity events, performances in school theatrical circle, discos and events class. The school prepares students to take science to the next stage of learning to function independently in society and active participation in cultural life, among others, by organizing trips to the theatre, film and theatre lessons and school meetings with classical music performed by artists of the Silesian Philharmonic in Katowice.
